The Veldman family of Fort Wayne, Indiana is toughing out some dramatic decisions as they prepare to embark on a one-year sailing trip to all parts Caribbean. As a family, they will have to learn quickly the many aspects of sailing and how to manage themselves in any type of weather. “Our lives depend on it,” said Paul Veldman, father and co-captain.
“While there will be great moments of family fun and excitement,” said Paul Veldman, “We’ll also experience teamwork, different cultures, foods, languages, self-reliance, so a lot of learning as we go along.”
